Once you’ve arrived at your destination, all you really want to do is sit down, open a bottle and relax. So you need an easily accessible comfy chair or two and a handy table on which to put your bottle and assorted bowls of nibbles. Until recently this meant grovelling around under all your gear to find your deckchairs and then cursing the fact that your table only fitted inside your van when you want to be outside enjoying the view.
Things improved greatly a couple of years ago with the advent of the Loc8 Table System which allows easy storage of a brilliant camping table in your sliding door. The table itself can be used both inside and outside your van, so it’s a really versatile option. But the problem of the chairs remained; until now that is.
We are now proud to offer The Chairpod; a great idea taken from the VW California and developed here in the UK. The Chairpod fits onto the tailgate of your T5 or T6 and allows you to securely store two high quality light weight camping chairs in a place that is immediately accessible.
The pod itself is a neat black canvas style soft case which is neatly attached to the tailgate. Inside the chairpod is storage for the 2 camping chairs, which are then neatly zipped in when not in use. To get them out you simply unzip the Chairpod and unclip 2 securing tabs on the chair. Within seconds you’ve got the chair out and you can celebrate arrival at your destination by opening a bottle or two and having a well-deserved rest.
The chairs themselves are ultra-lightweight, but extremely strong and they have a capacity of 120kg (which is almost 19 stone if you are old fashioned). Best of all, they are comfy too!
And if the heavens open, it takes just seconds to fold them up and store them back in the Chairpod before climbing back in the van, taking your Loc8 Table with you.
So taken together, the Loc8 Table System and Chrairpod gives you the best possible way to have a camping table and chairs that are easily accessible when you need them and neatly stored out of the way when you don’t.
